… had I been cashier at Dogs R Us and a customer made the same sort-of smart-a$$ remark I did about the price of dog food:
“Well, sir, you can always put it back.”
“You, sir, are a reason I thank God every day for giving me patience.”
“My mother told me about people like you, but I thought she was kidding.”
“Well, sir, you can always go to Walmart and get some real cheap-s--- dog food.”
The thing is, she was a friendly young woman, all “Good afternoon, sir. How are you today?” and meaning it.
